BJ--Wow, lots of movement. emoticon

Suppose to have more rain tonight, then it is suppose to be over . Our area has dodged the proverbial bullet, but around us things are hectic. Possible flooding when more rain comes. School should be back on schedule tomorrow.

Went to 2 birthday celebrations on Saturday. A little worn out on Sunday. Knee injections yesterday and resting today.

Have a good night, All!

Been awhile since I've been on here. My husband and I joined LA Fitness and I've been going religiously. Yesterday I did 8 miles on the spinning bike (class was cancelled so I did it myself) and 40 minutes of weight training. Today I did 25 minutes on the treadmill, 30 situps (just starting those) and 12 laps in the pool. I keep tryiing!

Mornin' All...

Feels like a cold is on the horizon; I'm trying to fight it off with the usual Vitamin C, Tylenol, etc. Think I'll swap the elliptical workout for a little strength training -- gotta keep the momentum going.

Be safe.

Woke up to find some trees down and the yard is full of branches of all sizes. And there's a leak at the front of the house!

Mornin...

NYC public and private schools are closed today (says a whole lot about the impact of Hurricane Sandy). Unexpectedly being on lockdown for the day is going to put my SP new way of life to the test... The good news is that the fridge and cabinets have been stripped of "what NOT to indulge in on my new path to healthy living." The less than good news is I've gotta figure out how to repel old habits (i.e., nonstop eating -- just because). Yep, this is the real world, for sure...

For those in the path of the storm, be safe.

Mornin' All!

Battening down the hatches for the wind storm.
Today is DD birthday. We are going to do a little shopping and then she is going with me to the appt to get the knee shots. Then home again to get hubby off to work.

Hope all have a great day!

Sort of a dreary day here in NYC. But perfect for a slowly-cooked pot of soup! And since I've been sooo good this past week (and, whew!, just finished 30 mins. on the elliptical trainer), I'm gonna make a (small) cast-iron pan of cornbread to make my meal complete!

Hoping that we're all spared the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

I am so looking forward to today. Hubby and I are going to the South Bend farmer's market this morning. The fruits and vegetables are not all that great this time of year, but we do enjoy it there.

Hi Everyone!

Today is going to be another great day in Glindaland! I'm up early so I can get things done so I can read and do my embroidery later.

(((((MAY))))))
Your post reminds me of the time I lived in Michigan. Cold, Cold, Cold there! I live in Southern California now. To be perfectly honest I kind of miss it. I always like the snow except when it came to driving it. I also miss the seasonal changes.

Started the day by calling my granddaugher with wishes for a Very Special 14th Birthday! YIKES!! Where does the time go? I'm thinking about hooking up with the pharmaceutical companies to manufacture a pill that postpones the growth of grandchildren until the grandparents are ready for the next phase!

Hope you have a great day!

Ahh, an affirmation. I've come to learn that there are no accidents in life. Most often things happen for a reason and are part of His master plan.

Of all of the thousands of websites in the cyberworld -- and the Google search results that triple that number -- there was SP among the familiar sites that promote health and fitness plans (i.e., Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc.). Jaded as I can be, reluctantly I clicked in. And the rest is history.

For me, this experience sooo reinforces, "when the student is ready, the teacher appears!"

Hello Ladies,
I'm excited to be here. I just got back from a nice long walk. My back is bothering me some (I have had a spinal fusion) so I am going to rest for the remainder of the day.

Barb,
I've never heard of a bean pot. Sounds interesting. I live on beans. I'll Google it to see what it is.

Have an awesome SPARKLING day!

Mornin' All...

Excited to report how happy I am with my NEW crockpot! I've made a turkey soup with a great shortcut, compliments of my supermarket. Bought a package of cut-up turkey parts; and pre-packaged soup ingredients in the produce section (onions, herbs, parsnips, celery, carrots.. you get the idea!) Next I modified a SP recipe -- fresh corn kernels, black beans, peach/mango salsa and skinless chicken thighs. Another Hit!

SP has been a God send on so many levels. Phenomenal support and encouragement from my amazing fellow Team members; coupled with simple tools to stay on track, keep momentum going, and succeed on my weight-loss journey. And last but not least, it's been a launch pad for me to remember me -- new elliptical trainer, new crock pot, ahh, the possibilities are endless!

Good morning, All!

Frosty and cold here today. 35 degrees at 6AM. So glad we have no snow yet. The trees are beginning to get bare. The wind over the weekend blew away a lot. The temp is still 35, just looked.

Have a great day, All! emoticon

Good Morning All,

I plan to have a great day, today! Lots to accomplish outside. Final mowing, trimming, pruning shrubs, raking, mulching. Should be great weather here most of the week so a final washing of outside of windows, and possibly staining the deck.

The idea is to be in motion more today than yesterday. emoticon

Praying and hoping for the very best for each SparkTeam member this week. emoticon

It is really pretty here in SE KS too. I think our trees are about at peak color. The drought was so bad, I am surprised the trees are as pretty as they are. Our afternoons are still warm, but most mornings and evenings, you want to grab a jacket.

Good morning everyone! Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day here in AR.

Yesterday was absolutely beautiful. Went with my husband to play golf. Short 9 hole course but UP and down in kind of a valley. He played and I walked. The trees were intermingled colors of red, gold, yellow and green. How blessed to be able to walk and see all HIS glory.

Hope you all have a great day!

Mother Nature is truly amazing! Here in my neck of the woods the foilage is just about at peak. The changing colors of the falling leaves are a sight to behold! Add in the morning sunshine and moderate temperatures and I'd say a perfect day! Just one of the reasons this is my favorite season.

Weather permitting, hope everyone gets to spend some time outdoors!

Mornin' All..

What a rainy, dreary Friday in NYC. The good news is that the w/e forecast is dry and sunny!

A new experience... My grandson is now 2 1/2 and I've just heard of a great consignment shop for childrens items! My daughter has a load of practically-new, high-quality items: clothes, hardly used high-chair and the like. It's feels good to know they'll have a new home (and my daughter will make a few extra dollar in the process).

From reading the posts, I should have anticipated the "plateau" phase. But knowing it and experiencing it sure is different... With all of my proper eating, steady exercising and drinking enough water to float a ship, the scale ain't moving. In a rational moment, I'm confident in knowing that the scale isn't the sole indicator of progress. But, oh, in those weak moments, I just wanna grab a bag of lime tortilla chips, a bowl of gaucomole, a pitcher of margaritas and throw caution to the wind!

Wishing all a good weekend!

Despite the crazy weather here in lower MI, the pug and I walked 1.5 miles today in 20 minutes. Very windy but nice and sunny when we started. Dark clouds suddenly formed overhead and we got rained on. Arrived home and all was sunny again. emoticon
The trees had been quite beautiful yesterday, but today at least half the leaves have fallen.

emoticon Hate to see the bare trees, but I guess we are just another day closer to Spring!

My good friend's Dad passed (94) and we are going to the funeral today. He had a good long life. Started out as a farmer, was a pilot, and a business owner in Texas. He retired back here in PA and was surrounded by family and loved ones when he passed.

On a lighter note, it is suppose to be a lovely day today and it may reach 60 degrees. That is great for an October day in PA.

Remember to count your Blessings! emoticon

82 degrees in Prescott!!! I'm a little jealous...

Can't believe I'm about to fall asleep at the computer and it's JUST 10:00p. It was one of those days -- was tempted to answer my office phone, "Central Booking!"

The only exercise I got was over-use of my brain. Does that count??

Wishing all a good nite...

Barb - Happy to hear that you are doing better. Maybe it seemed that we all got a little excited, but we care about you and wish only the best for you!. Be well.

Cheryl - Thank you for the support! The weather has been less than stellar around here the past 3 days, but today is sunshine and mild temps. I am contemplating doing THE WALK again today. You are correct, iIt is always a good idea to take the phone when walking.

Hey you gals, calm down, please! The dizziness only lasted Sat morning and some of the afternoon. The two nurses checked me out pretty good. They looked for symptoms of concussion and there was none. I did not lose consciousness. Just feel really silly about tripping like that.

I will let you know how I am doing. I think everything will be all right.

Thanks for all you concern!

Barb4Health- I must agree with my other Team mates, PLEASE seek medical attention if the dizziness continues. Things might heal up and look fine on the outside, but internally things might take a different direction. I have you in my prayers.

Such an unfortunate turn of events, BARB4HEALTH. The dizziness is what should be a concern. If it does continue, you want to make sure that you didn't suffer a concussion. Even I small one should be tended too.

Good morning, everyone! Puggybug, I think your walk sounds like a HUGE deal too! Congratulations on getting back to it. My DH insists that I take my cell phone when I walk as well. I'm a heart patient, and he worries, so I try to remember to take it with me!

Barb, I hope you're feeling better....have to agree with Diane...if you still have symptoms, please see a doctor....that's so scary!

Have a great day, gang, and drink lots of water!

Cheryl

OMG Barb4Health... Sorry to hear about your fall. If the dizziness continues into this afternoon, please do consider having it looked at by a Dr.

Hoping that today brings everyone a fresh, "I Can Do It!" attitude.

Hello, Folks!
Before going to the church craft/soup/sandwich day at the church Saturday, I fell face down on the porch. Got a cut above my right eyebrow. Went to activity anyway to set a table up and have fellowship with the folks. Hubby thot I should get stitches, but I just patched it up myself and off I went. Was dizzy most of the morning, headache in the evening. Woke up with swelling and bruising around my eye. If I could just quit injuring myself!

There were two nurses there who were hovering over me to make sure I was OK.

What a day! Disappointed at the turnout. Oh, well, I think the reddish/purplish color won't last long. The cut seems to be mending well.

Have a great week, All!

Congratulations Puggybug!!! It has to be a wonderful feeling to be able to do something that you enjoyed and weren't able to do for such a long time.

Also, love the in-store 12 minute exercise routine. Will have to try that when I'm shopping and find myself pressed for time.

Hope everyone has had a relaxing weekend...

It's Sunday evening, wind-down time. I would've never imagined looking forward to Monday and the start of the work week! But the truth is that Monday thru Friday brings a familiar routine that comes without thought: when to exercise, what to eat, how much water to drink. The unstructured weekend can get a little tricky!

I'm excited about next week's UPS delivery of my new crock pot! I have visions of getting home from work and being met at the front door by the smells of good ole' down-home cooking. I'm gonna check out SparkRecipes.com for some crock pot ideas; I'm hopng that the nutritional values will be included to help with tracking.

Oh well, I've got another hour before settling in for my favorite show, The Good Wife! Wishing all a good nite...

I will have to keep that exercise in mind the next time Hubby drools over the lawn tractors at Sears. They are next to the exercise equipment.

Thank you, Ginny.

Today DH and I went shopping. Stopped at Applebee's Restaurant for lunch. I had a soup/salad combo at just over 500 calories and split a chocolate ice cream dessert with DH. He wanted to go to Dunham's Sporting Goods after lunch to look for golf shoes as well as browse. While he browsed about the store, I did 12 minutes on a stationery recumbant bike. A salesman thought he was going to make sale, and DH thought I had lost my mind. LOL! Hey, I take my exercise of at least 10 minutes whenever I can get it, and this seemed like a golden opportunity to me. emoticon

Good Morning SparkTeam,

Yesterday my kid (Charlie Brown, the pug) and I went for a 2.30 mile walk. We used to walk this route all the time. However I was very sick this last winter and spring and I was unable to do any walking. Many days just walking inside my house was a struggle. Charlie was so excited to be out and about and kept trying to run which I could not do. We made it but it took 50 minutes. Used to take less than 30 minutes when I was in better shape. I still experience neurological problems with my legs and feet and had some trepidation about walking the entire route yesterday, but I waited for my DH to come home from work and told him I was going to try to do the walk. I took my phone with me in case of leg/foot trouble so I could call him to come get Charlie and me. Now I know this may not sound like a big deal to a lot of people, but for me it is HUGE! I did experience a bit of trouble with my feet and I know I will have to wait a day or two before I dare try to walk this route again, but I feel wonderful just knowing I can STILL DO IT at all!

Thank you SparkTeam and Spark Friends for listening. emoticon

What a coincidence! We are also having ham & beans today! Had a little rain yesterday so it was in the 30's last night. It is 53 out now. Walked the dog and it is so nice out now. Breezy but wonderful.

Have a great weekend everyone.

It was in the 30's here this AM. It is raining, but Sunday is suppose to be 60. WooHoo!
Thinking of soup for supper also. And having soup at the craft/soup/sandwich day at church tomorrow. I am making bean and ham for the sale. That is my husband's favorite. I do it heavy on the beans, onions, add some carrots and easy on the ham cause I have a ham bone. Making myself hungry for soup!

Have a great day, Everybody!

TGIF... I'm sooo ready for the weekend!

Now that we're headed into the cooler to cold season, I decided buying a crock pot could be a good thing! Any good recipes, anyone??

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! Carol, you are right....any reduction in meds is a good thing! I'm hoping to get some others reduced or eliminated as I progress. Because I had bypass surgery 2 years ago (sextuple, at age 49!), there are some things that I will probably ALWAYS have to take, but maybe we can reduce the dosage anyway!

Have a great day everyone!

I'm so happy today! About three weeks ago, I was down a total of 36 pounds. Then I stopped one of my blood pressure medicines (a diuretic) and had a couple of cheats, and my weight was up. I wasn't too awfully discouraged, because I knew it was partly because of the medicine and that it would even out. This morning, I'm back to a 36 pound loss. I'm on the right track, and making progress, and that feels good! I did slack off on the exercise yesterday.....I've go a bad cold, and just couldn't face it. Went to bed at 8:30 last night!

Have a great day everyone!

Cheryl

Diane, Your dinner sounds yummy! I love clam sauce - red or white, makes no difference to me! This is what is so wonderful about Spark - we can eat "everything" as long as we use portion control and plan the rest of the day accordingly emoticon It's so obvious to me why the "Diet Industry" is making millions of dollars every year. People go on these restrictive diets and the outcome is always the same - one of two things happens. Either you stay on the diet for a couple of weeks and get so sick of not being able to eat like a normal person that you just quit, OR you tough it out, lose the weight, and then eat everything that doesn't eat you first because you've been deprived for so long emoticon No matter which road you take, you usually wind up gaining back all the weight, plus a few extra pounds emoticon So, back on another diet we go and the cycle continues emoticon I am so amazed at how simple it really is and Spark put it all in perspective for me. I just wish I would have grasped the concept years ago, instead of looking for "miracles" to lose weight fast. I could have gone on a European vacation and an Alaskan cruise with all the money I've spent on diet books, diet programs, and diet foods! emoticon
